Subject: re Velveeta
The ambiance/texture of the Matrix format offers at lot, especially in dimensionality: the right time delay between the SNB and the AUD can fill out the aural space like nothing going. That said, why, oh why, do we have to have one one the sweetest of Jerry's Stellas filled with crowd noise and fire crackers??? (Because they were there?) And if you're adding crowd noise for ambiance, why not the interludes between songs as we were teased with what might be coming next: as it is we still have the abrupt segues between tracks that only reinforce the tag the Dead put across the cellophane of their records of the time: "There is nothing like a Grateful Dead Concert."
Still, for the flaws, this is the best recording I've heard of an exceptional show. (I first saw them a few weeks later at great - if slightly shorter - show that oddly doesn't appear on the master list at Dead.net, at the Spectrum in Philadelphia on their way up to Watkins Glen.)
Subject: cool matrix
great job on the matrix. I find it hard to appreciate a matrix, not many guys out there know how to get a good ballance between the SBD and the AUD
however, this matrix is stellar. thank you kevin
Subject: I think it sounds great,
personally. Lots of clarity juxtaposed with depth, and I don't usually like matrix recordings. Something's right about this one. The show is very jazzy-jammy, sometimes totally spaced out, sometimes dead tight, very mellow and pretty.
Subject: One of the best... but the best copy is...
This has got to be one of the greatest Dead shows ever, opening with Morning Dew...closing the show with a great 3rd set that includes Dicky Betts! Sweet!
I can't give this copy a good rating for the poooooor quality on gdtrfb alone. However, Kevin Tobin made a different copy from the C Miller SB and patched it with audience sources. That one sounds fantastic.
Subject: I was there...
Only 14 at the time and drank too much wine, so I don't remember much :p It sure sounds great on this recording!
Jerry D -
Subject: This is interesting to listen to...
It is a big difference from the "dry" SBD mix and the "muddy" AUD recording. I really appreciate the effort-it must have been a lot of work...
In theory these matrix mixes could be cool but since the aud and sbd sources are such different quality here it just ends up sounding cheesy.
Subject: nice job
A beautiful take on a classic show. I love those matrix mixes, Kevin!
Subject: Beautiful sounding
I just love the way this sounds. Great show as well. The matrix really helps to fill the sound in and make the typically dry sounding wall of sound boards sound full and ambient. Like your there.
